Only a few times has the true essence of smokejumping ever been captured by way of an artist's work. This is one of those times.
Former jumper Davis Perkins (NCSB-72), now a nationally known artist, has created a painting called "Jumping the Spot Fires," oil on canvas. The National Smokejumper Association commissioned this work to commemorate the 75th anniversary of smokejumping; the original was auctioned at the NSA reunion in July 2015 as a fundraiser.
In the opinion of many, this is the best smokejumper art ever done.
We now offer an 18-by-24 print exactly as shown, printed on 13-mil art paper and excellent for framing. We'll ship yours in a special protective tube so it arrives at your house in good shape.
This is a special item that reflects the pride in the job smokejumpers have done. A great gift idea!
